By Deidre Grieves    December 11, 2015 at 03:17PM / (0) comments

Bravo Pet Foods of Manchester, Conn., is recalling select lots of Bravo Chicken Blend diet for dogs and cats due to the possible presence of Salmonella.

 

Routine testing by the Colorado State Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Salmonella contamination in a single package of Bravo Chicken Blend Diet for Dogs and Cats (2 lb. chub only) made on 11/13/14 with a best used by date of 11/13/16.

 

The recall includes the following product and production lot:

According to an alert on the Bravo website, 201 cases of this product were sold to distributors, retail stores, Internet retailers and directly to consumers in the US.

 

In addition, the company is voluntarily recalling products that were produced in the same manufacturing facility on the same day as the product that tested positive. These additional lots are being recalled out of an abundance of caution and have not tested positive for Salmonella contamination.

The company has received no reports to date of illness in either people or animals associated with these products.

 

Salmonella can cause serious illness or fatal infection in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

 

The recalled product should not be fed to pets. Pet owners who have the affected product at home should dispose of it in a safe manner. To submit a claim, pet owners should fill out Bravo’s claim form (http://www.bravorawdiet.com/images/BravoRecall_ConsumerClaimFormDec.pdf) and return to the store where they bought the product.
